be easily. >> this week on "inside washington," president obama makes his case for a second act. >> yes, our path is harder, but it leads to a better place. yes, our road is long work, but we travel it to other. we don't turn back, we leave no one behind. >> for barack, as is not about how much money you make. it is about the difference you make in people's lives. >> this man has courage in his soul, compassion in his heart, and a spine of steel. >> on day one, they came after women's health and they have not let up since. >> and the big dog is back. >> we simply cannot afford to give up the reins of government to someone who will double down on trickle-down. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> i don't want to bore you with numbers, but i will stop there. as of friday morning, the real clear politics averages were president obama, 46.7%, mitt romney, 46.7%. they are statistically tied in many of the battle ground states as well. 2/3 of the american people think the country is headed in the wrong direction. we learned that the jobless rate is down from 8.3 but
. this afternoon president obama arrived in charlotte right in time for a star studded night. the marquee speaker tonight, former president bill clinton. the crowd will also hear from elizabeth warren running for the senate in massachusetts. the speakers have been passionate at this convention. throwing punch after punch at republicans and aggressively affirming the strength of the president's record. and it's been great to see. they talked about the auto bailout. >> the american auto industry is not just surviving. it's thriving. where mitt romney was willing to turn his back on akron, dayton, and toledo, ohio, the president said i've got your back. >> the president's record on women's issues. >> being a mother is no longer a liability. and being a woman is no longer a pre-existing condition. now, that's what change looks like. >> and we've heard the most sustained defense of the obama health care law and what it means to this country. >> this is the president who delivered the security of affordable health care to every single american in every corner of this country after 90 years of trying. >
class to hispanics and to women. the night's headliner michelle obama, she blew the roof off the place. >> at the end of the day, my most important title is still mom in chief. >> keynote speaker julian castro touched the crowd with his story of humble beginnings the first hispanic to deliver a keynote speech at the dnc. he talked up the president but delivered a punch to mitt romney. >> i don't think governor romney nent meant any marm. he has no idea how good he's had it. mitt romney quite simply doesn't get it. >> it was a democratic party so speakers served up a lot of red meat. >> if mitt was santa claus, he would fire the reindeer and outsource the elves. >> women still earn just 77 cents for every dollar men make. maybe 23 cents doesn't sound like a lot to someone with a swiss bank account, a cayman island investment. >> put simply, women in america cannot trust mitt romney. >> i want to bring in ruth marcus, columnist for "washington post" and political reporter nick con sore ri. let's talk about michelle obama. it was called a resounding trium triumph. what do you think she ac
, by cooperation. and by the way, after last night, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and g
country forward, my husband, our president, barack obama. ( cheers and applause ) thank you. god bless you. god bless america. >> first lady of the united states, the most popular women in the country. more popular than her husband. certainly more popular than anybody else in this room right now, judy. >> woodruff: i think by far, gwen, the woman who knows the president of the united states better than anyone in 22-23-minute speech, it was a blend of the personal, the biographical, the political, the inspirational, and a call to arms. making almost a plea at the end there to people to recognize that they need to go out and work to get her husband elected for this country to move ahead and do what it can do and be what it can be. >> she is more in love with her house now than four years ago and probably hoping everybody in this room and outside this room was more in love as well. >> you're right. i think it was a genius speech, true genius. it was sophisticate sophisticate without ever once mentioning mitt romney's name, she drew a stark, graphic, dramatic contrast between the two lives. sh
an open as. -- an openness. >> we get an update from the chairman of the dnc. >> president obama will be arriving thursday. there are different caucuses that have been seen today with different speakers. it has more of a feel of a real convention. we have seen a lot of barack obama merchandise and we did not see that in tampa with mitt romney. >> in my experience, republicans are a little bit more disciplined and a little bit more buttoned down. the democrats are little bit more improvisational. the only improvised moment with the republicans in temple was with clint eastwood. >> i was at a breakfast earlier today and somebody actually brought an empty chair onto the stage. it was one of the most energized moments i have seen so far. >> there is rain outside in charlotte. earlier james taylor was singing "carolina on my mind." we may have to hold off on that music festival. >> right now they are setting up for tomorrow. this has been a more relaxed opening to this convention compared to tampa. people industry carnival or very loose. -- are very loose. this is a democratic base th
-- immigration reform, and for those of us that followed that, barack obama voted for poison-pill amendments the coalition did not support, that john mccain/kennedy did not support, yet when it came to the election, john mccain did horrible with latino voters and felt abandoned by the group he felt he had been fighting for, and probably one of the most negative eds their opinion 2008 was a spanish language and then try to link john mccain to the use of rush limbaugh, not even fairly taken -- taking the views of rush limbaugh into context, and he hates the john mccain, but he abandoned immigration reform after the election, and frankly, just talking about the principles, how could you blame him? >> i would say his party abandoned him. we saw in the primaries leading up to the nomination, you had rudy guiliani trying to outdo each other in terms of extreme rhetoric that was anti-locking all. it was a weight that he could not overcome as he was headed into the nomination and he realized he could not fulfil the positions he had taken early on and had no choice. i think this is a reflection of th
to president obama, they just didn't say very much about the ideas they've offered over the last two years. they couldn't. because they want to go back to the same old policies that got us in trouble in the first place. they want to cut taxes for higher income americans even more than president bush did, get rid of the pesky financial regulations designed to preven another crash and prohibit future bailouts. they want to increase defense spending over a decade, $2 trillion more, than the pentagon has requested, without saying what they'll spend it on. and they want to make enormous cuts in the rest of the budget, especially programs that help the middle class and poor children. as another president once said, there they go again. >> a lot of references in his speech, both subtle and direct, former republicanpresident, ronald reagan. president obama came out on stage. the two men shared a hug, a show of appreciation for a speech that may have gone a long way in helping obama's campaign. a lot to talk about. quick reactions from our panelists, in terms of the top takeaway for tonight? john?
in charlotte, north carolina. democrats have renominated president barack obama after a long and electrifying nomination speech by the former president, bill clinton. >> he answered the attacks last week made in tampa, and plenty of attacks of his own. >> in tampa, the republican argument against the president's re-election was actually pretty simple, pretty snappy. it went something like this, we left him a total mess. he hadn't cleaned it up fast enough, so fire him and put us back in. now, but they did it well, they looked good, they sounded good. they convinced me that they all love their families and their children, and were grateful they had been born in america. really, i'm not -- they did. and this is important. they convinced me they were honorable people who believed what they said. we just have to make sure the american people know what those commitments are. because in order to look like an acceptable reasonable moderate alternative to president obama, they just didn't say very much about the ideas they offered over the last two years. they couldn't. because they want to go back t
. to reelect the president. >> in charlotte tonight, bill clinton nominates barack obama to serve a second term, appealing to voters who still think it's all about the economy. >> i hope i bring some credibility on what the most effective way to create jobs and bring america back is. >> these two democrats have been at odds in the past. but they're united in the battle to hold on to the white house. >> you're in good hands. >> look for clinton to fire up supporters tonight as he has before. but is there a risk he'll upstage the president? >> sit down! >> now, cnn turns the spotlight on one of the biggest platforms in american politics. this is the democratic national convention. this is the night delegates have their say. >> join with me, we will elect barack obama president of the united states of america. >> this is america's choice. >>> we'd like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. everyone here is waiting to hear what bill clinton will say about president obama tonight as well as his own t
the republican narrative that obama was a failed president who had accomplished nothing. and beat it back they did. >> president obama saved the auto industry. >> saved a million jobs. >> thanks to barack obama, james is working 60 hours a week on the jeep liberty line. >> yes! today james' life is endless toil and misery thanks to barack... oh. anyway, the point is... i'm sorry, you're not done? >> president obama has kept thousands of first responders on the job. >> he's saved the jobs of teachers. >> because of president obama's courage... >> he invested in clean energy, made health care a right. >> jon: made american babies 15% cuter! he invented a car that runs on hugs! president obama set up the jolly green giant with the statue of liberty. oh, yes, it seems obvious now! (laughter) anything else? >> when a violent egyptian mob stormed the israeli embassy in cairo it was president obama who intervened to ensuring the safety of the israelis. >> jon: what is he (bleep)ing iron man now? what are you talking about? (cheers and applause) look, we get it. obama's been busy. >> president ob
think we are going to see a dramatically different rock obama -- barack obama if he wins, and specifically with regard to campaign finance reform. now he has said, and i got to play by the rules, because i cannot lose, but when i get in, i am going to fix this campaign finance issue, so what are your thoughts? >> i think my answer is the same, and that is that i do not know. now i do not think anyone knows. it is the obvious race between obama and romney, but it is the issue of campaigning, and we do not know who is going to end up in the white house if he wins reelection. there are differences between the two. obama campaigned as a leader, but he governs as a timid leader. you cannot be a transformational leader and not ruffle many feathers, and he understands that, and we have wasted a lot of pressures term, and if we go back to the original stimulus bill, if it had been better crafted, better targeted, larger, we would have perhaps not had ongoing erosion in terms of jobs that we have seen, so time matters comi-con when it comes to us it -- time matters when it comes t
michelle obama. chris matthews? >> certainly made the connection, don't you think? i mean, so much of tonight was interactive. it was between her and that audience in the room. i thought the camera work was so important watching this on television. you saw on the faces of men and women, black and white, all different backgrounds, the connection. she was with people. the emotional connection, telling the story of her love affair with her husband. with her life of getting ahead. but there was one big difference than four years ago which just came through in the earlier speeches tonight. it was hope and change, yes, hope and change but not hope and change imaginally overnight. but hope through work and patience and time and effort and then change. i think it was a much more mature look at their own lives as they got there. i'll tell you, i assume most americans watching tonight who have been lucky in this country, have gotten close to the american dream, have done it the way they did it. with student loans. with good parents who made them study. of being parents who make their kids st
-killing obama care nationalized medicine. record gas prices? a record number of americans on food stamps, doubling in the past four years to 47 million. this comes as a debt clock goes above the $16 trillion dollar mark. and the worst josh, an worst economy record in the post war era, back to 1947. so go ahead and celebrate, democrats. but as my mentor ronald reagan used to say -- >> ask yourself, are you better off than you were four years ago? is it easier for you to go and buy things in the stores than it was four years ago? is there more orless unemployment in the country than there was four years ago? >> well, i don't think so. and i don't think the democrats should be celebrating. that's just my opinion. we will debate. and also, a comment reportedly by bill clinton has everyone buzzing. quote, a few years ago this guy, meaning president obama, would have been carrying our bags. quite a distasteful comment. but ed klein, author of "the amateur" is our special guest on the whole clinton speech and the convention. the market down $55, the ism manufacturing index fell below 50 for the
obama. all of this as the convention begins here in charlotte, north carolina. ♪ ♪ >> thank you so much. thank you. the 46th quadrennial national convention of the democratic national party will now come to order. of the next three days we will hold the most open and accessible political convention in history. thank you. dior's from across the country and world can watch the entire convention, gavel-to-gavel, on the website and through our global application. the entire program is also being streamed simultaneous in spanish. [cheers and applause] we will clearly demonstrate why we need to key barack obama and joe biden in the white house. this convention is more than reelecting the president obama. it is about helping the economy from the middle class out. this success will be based on the gauging the. of all the people who want to put their shoulders to the whale to the willeacregion and change our country for the better. we are so proud we have the largest number of delegates ever assembled at a democratic national convention. as i look out from this podium, ee the strength and unity
with michelle obama and tonight's speakers have been clearly trying to continue to push romney and tonight particularly with sandra fluke, to push romney to push him to the extremes on cant rasept whereon and social issues that affect women. right now, that's working for obama. you know, people like to take about, well, there is a gap with men, that romney leads on. but i think the obama people figured out, they can keep the gap with women and hispanics and to keep forcing that out. don't let romney close it, which they may have been worried about, with the ann romney speech. i think some of this is a reaction to that. >> you point out, the man we saw on stage, jim sin gel, speaking about business and the way forward. brit, tonight, we have elizabeth warren, the senate candidate in massachusetts and then leading in to president clinton. what do you expect from both speeches? >> well, elizabeth warren's speech has been... put out. i have seen it. i don't think it will surprise anyone. she, like sandra fluke, will be a big hero and a big -- will get a big boost from this audience. it's what
said hillary clinton, 72 said michelle obama. >> a lot of her fans out there. she had an excellent speech, there's no doubt about that. >> for wolf blitzer and i. piers morgan continues our coverage from the n pires. >> good evening and welcome to charlotte's hottest hot spot. the cnn grill. the political meeting sometimes over a beer or two. i'm here with two trusty drinkers. and my political all star panel. where else but the speeches in great stuff tonight including rising star, san antonio mayor. the democrats not so secret weapon. >> he knows what it means when a family struggles. he knows what it means to want something more for your kids and grandkids. barack knows the american dream because he's lived it and he wants everyone in this country, everyone to have the same opportunity no matter who we are or where we're from or what we look like or who we love. >> you have attracted quite a crowd. >> it is the sizzling energy bouncing off the place. the castro brothers were very die n dynamic. michelle obama knocked it out of the park as you americans would say. >> i thought she
-americans, and young people. first lady michelle obama will be front and center tonight. and as will san antonio mayor castro. who gives the big keynote address, democrats are proud of that your policies. and what they believe in will be demonstrated on stage. last week, republicans tried to hide what they were really about. just look at this. 55 prime time speeches, not a single one, not one, included the words tea party. all those unpopular extreme republicans, gop decided to keep them out of the public eye. guess that tea was little too strong for swing voters around the country. let's remember the most conservative platform in history. you know, that one that didn't represent their nominee. >> this is the platform of the republican part. it is not the platform of mitt romney. >> yeah. he's just the head of the party. but this week is different. forget the caricature of the president and his policies. at his convention, democrats will set the record straight. >> they spend a lot of time talking about me but didn't spend a lot of time talking about you. basically they said first of all, everything i
